70% is passing, 50.000000000000000000000000001 is just above the mid-point. MOM expects more from her children than either.

100%, of course? No errors?

Pat and I are coming home tomorrow. I expect a FULL report by tomorrow night.

And what does your Proud Poppa say about you not walking the walk at UNT?

By and by we moving through the long grass along the edge of the marsh, which I dont want to cause the marsh it full of snake, only there nothing much I can do. My mama she say ifn you has to choose youself between a alligator and a snake you best choose the alligator, cause you cant see or either hear the snake before it come to strike. The old man he dont seem to know about snakes, or maybe he do and dont mind none on ac-count of he the devil and been a snake hisself what just as bad. Either way Im is holding my breath to see what what, only noth-ing happen, and then pretty soon we leaving the tall grass and coming up a rise. There some black-green oaks up top with they branches sagging to the ground, and up past that theres a dirt-white clapboard cabin with a tintop roof...

The Seven Layers, like the Seven Veils, are considerably more obscure than they need to be, especially the Session Layer. But like King Herod Antipas's marriage to Herodias, some things are better left unremarked, for those who prefer to avoid the Separation Blues.

I'd rather throw up first. I saw a guy throw up whilst asleep once. He won the Woof of the Year Award hands down.

The Woof of the Week award was a way of disuading excessive drinking among the members of the university residence I inhabited while persuing my studies of higher education and pussy. Each week, six members of the "house" were designated as assistent proctors and refrained from all substance injestion. These men would patrol the house to ensure anyone not from the house had reason to be in the house, to ensure rowdy behaviour was within reason, and, among other duties, to ensure that anybody who drank to excess and subsequently woofed was photographed. The winning photo was posted on the entrances to the dining hall upon the Woof of the Week plaque. Woofers were not allowed to remove their pic until such time as a new Woof of the Week was awarded although the plaque was removed prior to socials held in the dining hall.

Probably fighting over Gluon, like girls used to fight over me. Ah, I know the problems of being an irresistible male just as Gluon does!

Whew! Poppy's foot is healing well, even though it still looks a bit uncomfortable. Girls will be girls - lucky it was Cinnamon who gave her a chomp on the foot, not Gluon. I'll bet that pooch/duck has a painful bite with those cartoonish duck-teeth.

If you don't like that one, I suggest RFC 2460, from which the following is extracted:

   A flow is a sequence of packets sent from a particular source to a particular (unicast or multicast) destination for which the source desires special handling by the intervening routers. The nature of that special handling might be conveyed to the routers by a control protocol, such as a resource reservation protocol, or by information within the flow's packets themselves, e.g., in a hop-by-hop option. The details of such control protocols or options are beyond the scope of this document.

   There may be multiple active flows from a source to a destination, as well as traffic that is not associated with any flow. A flow is   uniquely identified by the combination of a source address and a    non-zero flow label. Packets that do not belong to a flow carry a    flow label of zero.

   A flow label is assigned to a flow by the flow's source node. New flow labels must be chosen (pseudo-)randomly and uniformly from the   range 1 to FFFFF hex. The purpose of the random allocation is to    make any set of bits within the Flow Label field suitable for use as a hash key by routers, for looking up the state associated with the   flow.

   All packets belonging to the same flow must be sent with the same
source address, destination address, and flow label. If any of those
packets includes a Hop-by-Hop Options header, then they all must be
originated with the same Hop-by-Hop Options header contents (excluding the Next Header field of the Hop-by-Hop Options header).   If any of those packets includes a Routing header, then they all must
be originated with the same contents in all extension headers up to
and including the Routing header (excluding the Next Header field in
the Routing header). The routers or destinations are permitted, but
not required, to verify that these conditions are satisfied. If a
violation is detected, it should be reported to the source by an ICMP
Parameter Problem message, Code 0, pointing to the high-order octet
of the Flow Label field (i.e., offset 1 within the IPv6 packet).

   The maximum lifetime of any flow-handling state established along a
flow's path must be specified as part of the description of the
state-establishment mechanism, e.g., the resource reservation
protocol or the flow-setup hop-by-hop option. A source must not re- use a flow label for a new flow within the maximum lifetime of any   flow-handling state that might have been established for the prior
use of that flow label.

   When a node stops and restarts (e.g., as a result of a "crash"), it
must be careful not to use a flow label that it might have used for
an earlier flow whose lifetime may not have expired yet. This may be
accomplished by recording flow label usage on stable storage so that
it can be remembered across crashes, or by refraining from using any
flow labels until the maximum lifetime of any possible previously
established flows has expired. If the minimum time for rebooting the
node is known, that time can be deducted from the necessary waiting
period before starting to allocate flow labels.


This, of course, refers to IPv6 and not IPv4.

Gee, I used to read stuff like this for a living (from RFC 1217, by V. Cerf et al.):

(d) Recursive Self-encapsulation. Since it is self-evident that
          layered communication is a GOOD THING, more layers
          must be better. It is proposed to recursively encapsulate
          each of the 7 layers of OSI, yielding a 49 layer
          communications model. The redundancy and
          retransmission and flow control achieved by this means
          should produce an extremely low bandwidth system if,
          indeed, any information can be transmitted at all. It is
          proposed that the top level application layer utilize ASN.1
          encoded in a 32 bit per character set.

    (e) Scaling. The initial M1A1 tank basis for the land mobile
          communication system can be improved. It is proposed to
          reduce the effective data rate further by replacing the
          tanks with shuttle launch vehicles. The only slower method
          of signalling might be the use of cars on any freeway in the
          Los Angeles area.

    (f) Network Management. It is proposed to adopt the Slow
          Network Management Protocol (SNMP) as a standard for
          ULSNET. All standard Management Information Base
          variables will be specified in Serbo-Croatian and all
          computations carried-out in reverse-Polish.


This really IS an important document and I suggest every read it in its entirety.

HEre, LH, this may help make it easier:

Two equivalence relations between geometric figures were used: congruence and similarity. Translations, rotations and reflections transform a figure into congruent figures; homotheties ? into similar figures. For example, all circles are mutually similar, but ellipses are not similar to circles. A third equivalence relation, introduced by projective geometry (Gaspard Monge, 1795), corresponds to projective transformations. Not only ellipses but also parabolas and hyperbolas turn into circles under appropriate projective transformations; they all are projectively equivalent figures.

The relation between the two geometries, Euclidean and projective,[4] shows that mathematical objects are not given to us with their structure.[5] Rather, each mathematical theory describes its objects by some of their properties, precisely those that are put as axioms at the foundations of the theory.[6]

Distances and angles are never mentioned in the axioms of the projective geometry and therefore cannot appear in its theorems. The question "what is the sum of the three angles of a triangle" is meaningful in the Euclidean geometry but meaningless in the projective geometry.

Sure is cool to be a Real Researcher. Betcha Amos would like to be a Real Researcher, but you have to meet Special Requirements to be one -- they don't let every Tom, Dick and Amos become Real Researchers. For one thing, you have to be at least 14 years old and you also have to be able to read and write. And, taking all the fun out of it, the National Archives won't let you just wander around in the stacks looking at stuff -- you have to ask exactly for what you want and that means you have to know how to find out what you want to know and THAT means you have to be a Real Researcher. They limit what you can bring in, too: no guns, no pens, any paper has to be approved by them (or you can use the stuff they supply), no knives, no explosives -- shucks, if the library in Pocatello was run that way there wouldn't be anyone using it. But they do let you bring in your own computer, flatbed scanner, and computer accessories. No candy, no liquids of any kind...if they weren't nice they'd be mean old librarians instead of modern archivists.

Salt... nay, nay, nay. Salt helps you absorb calories from various foods. Resign yourself to the fact that you only use salt on certain treats that warrant salt as an extra treat. EG, tonight, for the first time in weeks, I am gonna celebrate my recent milestone with as much sirloin tip beef steak as I can eat (not near as much as I used to eat at a sitting because eating every two hours lowers your intake so it takes much less to feel full) and I will not hold back on the salt and pepper. And, very important, due to the extra salt, I will drink lots of water... although there may be additives.

MMario... stick to it. It's tough but one of the things that worked for me BIG TIME was accepting that it was gonna take BIG TIME and that I had to be satisfied with slow weight loss. Fast weight loss is not healthy and seldom permanent. It may work if you wanna lose 5 or 10 pounds but it it still doesn't do the body any good.

My goal was to AVERAGE 1/2 pound per week. It worked because it was a reasonable goal. I think that is why I exceeded the average goal overall. And I was never hungry... heck, I did some things that would drive Oprah nuts... like eat two large bowls of ice cream for supper after eating only raw veggies all day (not too often).

I am thinking of a diet book with the details... "The gnu Diet"... and it will be quite thin (yes) as it needent be too verbose to convey the basics.
